Reality_Unwoven saidJustified? How can you really say that they would be justified to watch a fellow human die a horrible death such as that? I think the point the article made of the value of human life is 100% correct.
Just because we all go through trials and tribulation don't mean we don't act when a life is in danger. Specially if it is in the power of the individual to do something!
Maybe I'm missing something, maybe a post was deleted or edited, but I don't see any post prior to yours that suggests they would have been justified in not helping. (That's why it can be good to quote.)
The post just prior to yours says this, "I don't see the point. The two gay guys only did what any decent person would do. It's not as if they would be justified in letting the neighbors burn to death. The fact that there was a feud going on is immaterial to this situation."
I'm wondering if that's the post to which you responded but you misread it.
